2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 from Frankfurt here is just 4 1/4 hours. The most tiresome ride we ever experienced.                      

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 One can form an idea of the number of troops passing through Frankfurt on the several roads when our experience shows that about 1300 cars, on this road, goes through, each 24 hours, and has been running so for nearly three weeks.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 4th  Our Hotel du Nord is a large house of good appearance, just opposite the large and hansom [sic]  railway depot.  Yesterday PM we had a nice Dinner served in our room which all of us enjoyed and this morning we find ourselves much refreshed after a good nights rest.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 It is painfull, or, sad, to see so much grain standing uncut. Dry and rattling in the wind, with grass rapidly growing up in it. The most of the harvesting is being done by women and boys, tediously clipping the wheat and oats with short, hand scythes.  The call for recruits has been so general that much of the grain will not be harvested. The grain is x sowed thickly and grows quite evenly,  but has not the highth, [sic] and healthy color, of our American fields.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 The country is rolling with hills always, in the distance, and by long cultivation, old orchards, cultivated groves, beautiful roads, has a finished and picturesque appearance. No large forest trees, only thickets and small groves- Travelling through Germany, on all kinds of roads, one is rarely out of sight of a village and generally four or five can be seen at a time. They are all as near alike as two peas. Always made of Brick plastered over white, always red, peeked, tile
